Keith David wasn't much of a character, to be honest.

Mordin Solus, you animals.
"Someone else might have gotten it wrong".
You're not completely wrong, and not completely right either.
I also believe having discs is last generation. When you resell used games, the two people making money are you and the reseller.
Resellers make most of the profit, for providing a simple service that costs them not very much at all. You make a couple of bucks on the game, which is fine, because you bought it supposedly full price, and want to make some money back.
I think all this transition to digital can be accomplished the same way it was on the PC - convenience and absurdly cheap reliable sales. Make the Xbox One digital store like Steam - unlimited downloads, at pretty good speeds, of any game you have ever bought; holiday and other occasional sales on the store. Don't matter if it's cheaper than disk. Microsoft don't need to play with retailers. Combine that with realistic depreciation of game price over time, and you got a winning combination.
@chrissedoff: You are an obnoxious idiot, you know that, right?
@darji: He is not their superior, without people streaming on Twitch, he wouldn't have a job. He is the superior of people he himself employs. To streamers, he is a steward of sorts.
@chrissedoff: He was not their boss, professor or any sort of ruling figure. He was the caretaker of the website they work at. A website which seems he treated as his personal playground. If your coworker went into your office, hung a picture oh his boyfriend dressed as a pony, and left, could you joke about it? Wouldn't you think it's crazy?
Whatever, I won't get into analogies. Point is, the mod took the wrong steps, and he confused his personal life with his work.
There has to be another side to this story, right? Based on the information we know, the Twitch admins look like pretty horrible human beings. So there has to be another piece to the puzzle that explains and justifies their actions, right?
Hopefully, but they've been pretty silent about the whole thing, except not very concrete promises of unbanning everyone.
They probably feel they are in the right. And I say "they" because Horror wouldn't have continued down the ban-parade without feeling certain he is supported.
That's why they are quiet. He's not gonna get fired, and that's pretty much the thing that would make all of this go away.
@darji: He's not their boss. He's a moderator, so he is technically serving them, as users, in keeping a chat in accordance to the rules of Twitch. If there were no viewers, he wouldn't have a job. It's not supposed to be his little corner of internet home, no matter how well he gets along with his employers. And if it is his to usurp, the users should be made aware.
@chrissedoff: How is it sexual harassment to make a joke? Jesus that's idiotic. The only sexual thing was putting his boyfriend's bedroom fantasy face as an emoticon on a website he supervises. The only harassment was banning people left and right for saying he was wrong.
The real problem is people acting like the thing they are taking care of, moderating, is their own back yard - the rules don't apply to them, only to others, and even then not consistently.
People that seek positions of power are the most likely to be the sort that abuses it.
Seems like he shouldn't have really made that emoticon, and if he did, he should take a joke about how ridiculous that is, and if he didn't, should have stopped at warning that one guy, at the very most. It's not his job to ban anyone who disagrees with him, it's to enforce rules and order. Not to create a little fiefdom where he is lord.
What the fuck is a fursona?
A furry alter ego of someone? This is pretty much the first time I hear off it.
